I have decided to retire from showing and breeding dogs. All of my dogs have been sold and are enjoying their new homes. Thank you to all clients and purchasers over the years for your patronage. I have enjoyed getting to know some of you and am very glad for the wonderful homes you have all given my dogs.

I have been breeding and showing Yorkshire Terriers since 1995. I am developing my own line of Champions from very good Champion lines.  My Yorkies are exceptional quality, healthy and well-loved.  All dogs and puppies are Canadian Kennel Club registered. I do not have or promote unregistered or crossbreed dogs.

Interviews for puppy or dog placement will apply.  I reserve the right to refuse any sale at my discretion. As my interest is in breeding to the breed standard for the Yorkshire Terrier, I do not breed or promote teacups. My puppies will be approximately 5 1/2 lbs to 7 lbs full size sometimes bigger.

Someone once asked me what is a reputable breeder?  At the time I was not willing to give a ready answer as I needed to put some thought into it.  A reputable breeder, in my opinion, hopefully is one I can only aspire to be myself, enough to hold my head up and know I am improving my dogs, my kennel name, my fellow “Yorkie breeders who trust me with their line, the time they gave me to help me, my breed, and indeed the intent and purpose of the purebred and show dog world with dignity and respect.  I alone must take the responsibility to rise up and aspire to a reputation of contributing to the breed and carrying the legacy left me by the breeders that have laid their own foundation for our respective breeds and trustingly handed it over to the newcomers such as myself. I can only hope the reputable breeder is the one I will see whenever I look in the mirror and hopefully, I will see the images reflected back of along with other true purebred dog fanciers, many of whom are currently in the show rings.
